Ever wonder about getting some geese? Here’s something you will want to read – there is a giveaway going on right now! And, you can win some geese! And a just released book – The Modern Homesteader’s Guide to Keeping Geese – stuffed full of information about geese! And a coop heater! And a gift card! Take a look…
While chickens preen in the spotlight, geese are the historic unsung heroes of small farms and homesteads. Providing weed control, large eggs, and entertainment, and acting as “security” over other animals, geese are the ultimate modern homesteading companion.
The Modern Homesteader’s Guide to Keeping Geese covers everything you need to know to raise geese, including:
- Profiles of breeds and how to select the best one for your needs
- How to “imprint” goslings on a person
- Feeding, housing, animal health, and cold weather care
- Using geese for weed control, soil improvement, and as “watch-geese”
- Cooking with goose eggs and meat
Additional coverage includes a look at the rich history of geese on farms in North America and Europe that will enhance any goose keeper’s enjoyment of these intelligent and unique birds.
This practical guide is a must-have essential for the kitchen table of homesteaders, small farmers, permaculturists, and professional farmers looking to add the power of geese to their land.
